    Many reports say the The Ox has a Hip injury. He may end up playing against the Panthers. But if he didn't how would this effect these positions.

    6,7 and 9.

    my pick

    6 Burns
    7 Monas
    9 Dunley and Ballin

    I can't comment on Ballin because I've never seen him. Whast about Glen Stewart as backup hooker? You guys could probably tell me more about Ballin though, ie as in if he's good enough.

    Stewart is an interesting option. I wouldn't go for it.

    Ballin is Ok and I guess he would deserve at least one go at 9 if it came up.

    I think they would put up Witt but I want to see Ballin get a run at some stage.

    Throw Groom in at half and leave the others as is. Assuming it is only one game it wouldnt hurt him.

    Sometimes that tactic works a treat. Never know, he could explode onto the scene, and bam, our next big thing.

    IF that happenned, what would we do when Orford came back?

    Byso - Witt would be half back, Monas hooker and Burns 5/8

    Fair enough I guess, I wouldn't mind seeing it but it would be a little risky for Dessie.

    scary stuff

    i think for one game i would go for monas specially with groper gower out
    its a case of the devil u know vs the devil u dont.

    Also in saying that monas is a confidence player and his confidence atm would be sky high.
